Limited 180 gm vinyl LP repressing of this 1959 album from the Soul/Funk legend. Through the Gospel-impassioned fury of his vocals and the complex polyrhythms of his beats, James Brown became the single most important figure in the transformation of Rhythm & Blues into SOUL music. He was also arguably the most influential African- American artist in the history of popular music. This seminal album helped define the primal nature of Soul. It also offers a solid introduction into this man's special brand of musical feeling: his passionate style, intense delivery and innovative R&B sound. The foot-tapping rhythms, spine-tingling styling's and sentimental mood renderings so typical of his early performances can all be heard here. Without a doubt, this is the material upon which James Brown's kingdom was built. Pan Am Records. 2011.
